Lascaux II replica of a Lascaux cave painting. These are deer and auroch figures in the Great Hall of the Bulls. The original Lascaux cave was closed to the public in 1963.

The Lascaux cave paintings in south-western France, around 17, 000 years old, were painted by Cro-Magnon man, an early European culture of modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens), using red, brown and yellow ochre, and black manganese dioxide.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the remarkable Lascaux II cave painting replica, specifically focusing on the mesmerizing deer and auroch figures found in the Great Hall of the Bulls. The original Lascaux cave, which dates back around 17, 000 years, was unfortunately closed to the public in 1963 due to preservation concerns. However, visitors can still marvel at these ancient masterpieces through the full-scale replica that opened nearby in 1983. Painted by Cro-Magnon man during the Stone Age using natural pigments such as red, brown, yellow ochre, and black manganese dioxide, these intricate artworks hold immense historical and cultural significance. They provide valuable insights into early European culture and offer glimpses into our ancestors' religious beliefs and artistic expressions. Photographed in 2010 by Philippe Psaila for Science Photo Library, this image beautifully captures not only the stunning details of each figure but also highlights their importance within anthropology and paleontology studies. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognized for its rock art heritage, Lascaux continues to be an invaluable resource for researchers studying prehistoric life. Through this photograph's lens, we are transported back thousands of years ago when animals like aurochs roamed freely alongside our ancient human predecessors. It serves as a powerful reminder of our shared history with wildlife and offers us an opportunity to appreciate both their beauty and our own rich cultural heritage.
